Yes! Don't even think about putting running shoes on.
Eat well, rest, get plenty of sleep. Plan all your kit and logistics for Sunday so that you're not worrying about anything.
And good luck with the 40-miler. Have you done off-road marathons before? You'll need to run this one much slower than your marathon pace. Do NOT see how far you can get at your normal marathon pace and try to 'hang on'!!
Enjoy the moment setting out on the third lap!!
It's the sort of event I would be interested in if I had known about it, so thanks for the heads up.
